You couldn’t shut up that guy; he always had to get his two-bits worth in” (Hinton 10).
He called both of them over to him but they were not sure what to do. “As Mr. Dolphus Raymond was an evil man I accepted his invitation reluctantly, but I followed Dill” (Lee 267). When they began to talk they found out that what he was drinking was coke and not alcohol, like people assumed he was and that he was a really nice man who just didn’t want to deal wiht the world around him.

It is because of this that Mack, as well as real world ‘bums’ resort to theft and swindling. In the book, Steinbeck refers to Mack and the boys as beauties and virtues since that is the way that he personally views them. It is most likely that Mack and the boys are referred to in this way because of their somewhat generous nature. This is similar to society’s stereotypes because many do in fact view the homeless as kind, otherwise nobody would give them any money or food. They are also similar in the way that both Mack and the boys and the homeless in general most often swindle whenever they have the chance, but they are also open to helping the other person rather than just taking and not giving back or being thankful.

He says that many of his friends often ask “Do you think these crackers are really safe to eat?” (Pg.774) this question upsets him because he wouldn't give someone food that is bad on purpose. To bring in the sarcasm and lighten up his anger he says that for some reason they always ask about the crackers. Eighner isn't sarcastic throughout the whole essay he is very informative as well. The information about the different stages of dumpster divers he gives is really interesting because you would think that a dumpster diver is as simple as that just diving for food. Surprisingly there is a lot of things that go through a new dumpster divers head like “ Every grain of rice is a maggot.” (Pg.777) these are all mental images that occur with a beginner that go away over time.

2. Rejected Extremes Jim is able to reconcile various manifestations of adulthood where others have failed through the rejection of rigid, extremist, and even stereotypical roles. A clear example of such dismissal of rigidity occurs when Captain Smollett commands Jim to get to work: “I assure you I was quite of the squire 's way of thinking, and hated the captain deeply” (Stevenson 28). Smollett is a unique character because unlike even most of the adults, he does not exhibit childlike tendencies and remains static throughout the narrative. Following Jim 's recapturing of the Hispaniola, he is hopeful that Smollett would forgive him for his disobedience.
Mark Twain’s utilization of Huck as a narrator is a key part in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Huck’s life is very easy to understand and follow throughout the story. The story would’ve been completely different if anyone else was the narrator. Twain uses Huck effectively as a narrator because we can sympathize with him more than we could with Jim, the many things he can do that Jim can’t, and through the hardships that Huck, Jim, and Tom face. Huck’s background makes us feel bad for him because he is a teenager who has a very abusive father and doesn’t have a mom.
